The Black Mountain Institute is proud to present an Emerging Writers Series event featuring, Leslie Jamison and her debut novel, "The Gin Closet", published when she was just 26. Jamison's novel has earned recognition as one of the Best Books of 2010 by the San Francisco Chronicle and has garnered praise for its unflinching yet lyrical portrait of addiction. Her forthcoming book, "The Empathy Exams: Essays on Pain," which covers subjects from slum tourism to ultra-running, won the Graywolf Press Nonfiction Prize and will be published in the fall.
Leslie Jamison will lead a discussion focused on her narrative craft, writing style, and influences.
This lecture is free and open to the public.
